ROSWELL, N.M., (UPI) —  Authorities in New Mexico and Colorado said they are trying to find the origins of a gun and ammunition packet discovered in a package of frozen meat.

Police in Roswell, N.M., said a worker at a local Albertsons store discovered the Rock Island Armory .38 Super and ammunition Wednesday in a case of frozen ribs originating from the Swift Packing Plant in Greeley, Colo., KRQE-TV, Albuquerque, reported Monday.

“We could speculate on a lot of things,” Sgt. Jim Preston said.  “It could have been someone just dropped it there, or it could have been something that someone put it there trying to hide it for 100 different reasons.”

Greeley police said they are looking into whether the gun may have been involved in any local crimes in 2011 when the meat was packaged.
